INDIANAPOLIS – More than $150,000 was raised for United Way of Howard County during Pat McAfee’s “Cracking up for Kokomo” fundraiser.

The sold out comedy show took place at Old National Centre Friday night.

McAfee, punter for the Indianapolis Colts announced the show soon after an EF-3 tornado bringing 136 miles per hour winds, struck Kokomo and surrounding cities in Howard County, leaving many damaged and destroyed homes.

All proceeds went toward storm damage relief for people in the area.
